Es no sense in the future The dialogue in the new future context is something no one would say ever It s weird and it doesn t workHonestly I didn t know it was possible to mess up a beautiful premise so much hide spoiler I m so ugly ight now My face is blotchy my eyes are bloody ed my nails oh no I have no nails left I m a great candidate for any horror movie monster casting call Even the husband dearest who is normally coolest mimic less Scorpio man worried about me and cover my face with trash bag so he stopped screaming when he was looking at me After I finished this book I cried so much I couldn t help myself Honestly my friends shaped my life and made me who I am than my own family They saw my ups and downs and I seriously did too many mistakes to Finding Caruso ruin my life because I m soeckless and hot tempered crazy Fat Lives redhead Aries woman and they always saved my ass punched me shook me and gave me the ugliest true messages I needed So when Iead a book about testing your Số phận chú bé đánh trống relationship with your childhood friend it was impossible for me gather all those broken pieces of my heart This book shook me to the core and thought me again instead of earning money being slaves of material things we have to collect friends who make us lives better and who help us to be a better person Bella and Dannie s heartbreaking emotional friendship affected me deeply Before starting toead this book let me tell you the facts about itThis book started so similar with Kristin Harmel s Life Intended when a woman dreams she can meet with her deceased husband at another universe and when she wakes up she A Southern Moderate in Radical Times: Henry Washington Hilliard, 1808-1892 resumes herelationship with her actual boyfriend But don t worry At this story our heroine dreams only one time Is it premonition A fantasy about a man she never knows Beginning of love triangle You have to Iran read and see by yourself But one thing for sure this story is complex than Kristin Harmel s because Dannie dreams her best friend s new boyfriendDon t wait toead a Tagebuch romcom about time traveling or parallel universes kind of fiction This book is not aomance story This is about a woman s self discovery life choices and love And of course there is another heavy stuffs hurt your heart deeply I don t want to discuss them because I don t want to be mean person who love to give spoilers normally I m mean and told the movie endings to everyone but when it comes to the books I m tight lipped but my emotions were everywhere after I closed the book and story occupied my mind haunted my dreamsThere is no bad guy of the story The characters are not flawless All of them have their own antics and irritated attitudes but you can understand each of them s motives and connect with them easily It s an amazing memory trip for me at the sightseeings of NYC including Dumbo Central Park and of course those delicious deli places when I move to LA I protest to eat bagel and pizza because they don t taste like New York s famous pastries Overall I don t care lack of omance or esemblances with other books including One Day in December I loved the creative outstanding smart and ealistic writing heart wrenching ending even the ending eally tore my heart outRebecca Serle you Access to English. Test pack 4 re amazing but I m not gonna forgive you to sledgehammer my heart My head is still spinning and I m so shaky because of the powerful writing Special thanks to NetGalley and Atria Books for sharing this meaningful ARC COPY and help me to discover a new writer by sharing this book in exchange my honesteviewbloginstagramfacebooktwitter I loved this book A eal gem Wonderful voice wonderful prose A strong female protagonist who easily carries the story The three dimensional characters are so well drawn they could walk ight off the page and have a cup
#Of Coffee With You #coffee with you writing craft here is amazing and will spoil me for the next book I pick up The prose is economic and yet dense and lush a uniue juxtaposition difficult to pull off I ead mostly Thrillers and mysteries which have acute plot points in the four C s of writing Conflict Complication Crisis and Conclusion In stories like this one the prose and voice in the four C s are mere blimps I was swept along in the enchanting Fictive DreamAt first I believed the motivation was set too firmly MAR Motivations Action Reaction and
That The Conclusion Wouldthe Conclusion would overt The premise also made this problematic But again the prose and engaging voice had me b I kinda went into this one blind which is not necessarily a bad thing So much time passes from the time I ead the synopsis of a book add it to my library ueue and wait for my turn to check it out that I often forget what the book is even about Within the first couple of chapters I was wondering is this a time traveling story Split personality Alternate universe I was hung up on figuring that
OUT WHICH MADE THE FIRST UARTERwhich made the first uarter the book character development a bit slow But once I let that go and got sucked into Dani s world I eally fell Grab tissues this is a sad story of heartache and friendship Hated It Of course I have to be the person who didn t love this In Five Years is the story of a woman who has it all the perfect fianc the perfect apartment and the perfect job But having it all doesn t mean that she s truly happy and a tragedy is about to test the boundaries of all that she believed to be perfect The night Dannie a corporate lawyer gets engaged she has a wild dream that takes place 5 years in the future This dream is about to alter her life in ways she could have never predicted On a positive note Dannie s dream and the way that is framed is the one element I eally liked about this bookMy biggest issues with this book concern the narrative and Dannie s character Dannie s character never felt eal to me I actually forgot her name until another character would speak it Constantly discussing her food choices and commenting on the weather seemed like tropes the author used to make Dannie s character feel eal but these elements didn. G on her finger and beside a very different man The television news is on in the background and she can just make out the scrolling date It’s the same night December 15 but 2025 five years in the future After a very intense shocking hour Dannie wakes again at the brink of midnight back in 2020 She can’t shake what has happened It certainly felt much than merely a dream but she isn’t the kind of person who believes in visions That nonsense.
T add any depth Serle also uses food to show how Dannie transforms ie she is going to change by ordering something different from her norm It also didn t feel natural the way she was talking about NYC it was almost like The Witch who was a princess reading a tourist s perspective of the cityOnto the narrative There was way too much of Dannie discussing her issues with her fianc I already forgot his name and finished this yesterday and with Bella her best friend without theeader getting to see what was truly going on in their elationship All of the characters felt one dimensional and clich d They didn t elicit any emotion ather they checked off the boxes to complete Dannie s storyI know a lot of people loved this book and I apologize if I said anything that diminishes one s eading experience My personal experience was not a good one For some eason this book angered me to no end I don t know what exactly triggered my anger but it might have been because I found this book predictable one dimensional and frustrating to Jeden výdych koňa read I felt like I should have been sobbing in the end but it left me feeling coldIeceived an ARC of this book from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest Eleanor, Quiet No More review Do you ever just finish a book sit back and think to yourself what on earth did I justead I went into this book expecting a sweeping love story for the ages one with a love triangle that would eally feel heart wrenching and give me all those conflicted feels But noWhat I got was a love hombusA very weird and very strange love What It Takes: Fighting for My Life and My Love of the Game rhombusBecause for so much of this book we knew the ending We knew the MC would end up in flagrante delicto with this guy who wasn t her fianc because at the start of the book we were given a flash forward seuence a premonition of sorts to our MC Dannie getting hot and heavy with a guy named Aaron who gave her all the feels So when Dannie met Aaron ineal time and we discovered who he was low key spoiler alert but also hella obvs her bestie Bella s new man sooooo HELLO LOVE RHOMBUSAnd therefore I couldn t Luftwaffe Fighters 1945 (Topcolors) root for Dannie and Aaron to be together BECAUSE THEY MADE NO SENSE as Aaron was shown to be entirely in love with Bella he and Dannie had zero chemistry plus the thoughts of Dannie and Aaron together brought a whole duplicitous vibe to the book Sisters before misters hoes over bros and all that And so we had Dannie denying her feels for Aaron which was good Showed she cared about Bella s happiness and didn t want to be a wench of a friend But I KNEW THAT ENDING WHERE DANNIE AND AARON HOOKED UP WAS ALWAYS GONNA HAPPEN So it made it difficult toeally empathise with Dannie because she was pretty much lying to herself about her true feelingsShe was also lying to her fianc David even if he was a wet wipeAnd lying to her bestie Bella even if she was the manic dream pixie of bestie girlfriends who I found uite irksome for the majority of the bookBut then the book threw me for a loop and went another waySo I m sort of shook I appreciate that this book took a plot twist I wasn t expecting but because I was expecting a traditional Revenant romance I feel somewhat shortchanged BUT THEN AGAIN THERE WAS A TRUE LOVE STORY BECAUSE IT WAS ABOUT THE LOVE BETWEEN BESTIES AND YAY FOR RAISING UP FEMALE FRIENDSHIPSHonestly I don t know what to say about this book Thiseview is a lol What the book has in its favour is that it s a uick and easy Pumpkinflowers read Iead it in a day and was happily distracted by It However It S Also One That However it s also one that had me going wtf from time to time but because I
